Today I visited ExOne in the Pittsburgh area for a Shapeways event focused on their steel printing. It was very cool! We were able to see all the machines up close and see the production line from beginning to end. We were asked to bring samples of our steel printed pieces, so I brought my recently printed Synergism Series.
We learned about Rhino 3D modeling software, printed 3D models on Makerbot 3D printers, and created molds of our 3D printed objects using silicon and casting in liquid plastic. We also had a bonus digital tool – a laser cutter/engraver, which I had fun with by engraving some plaster disks.
I’m in Snowmass CO at Anderson Ranch Arts Center for the week as I participate in a workshop on Silicon Molds & Digital Process led by Lynn Richardson. Hopefully I’ll have some good pics to share by Friday…
EyeSplice Collective: Prepare NOW
June 13- July 5, 2015
Opening reception Saturday June 13th, 6-10pm
The Front • 4100 St. Claude Avenue • New Orleans, LA 70117
In this group exhibition, EyeSplice Collective members creatively examine the weather. Whether it is the personal experience of observing a clearing storm, the tenuous reality of living in a drought state, or charting the wind patterns of a small town in West Virginia, each member of the Collective explores her relationship to the sky. In an age of alarmist, shouting headlines on the Weather Channel alongside the actualities of climate change, this exhibition seeks to balance the chaos of public knowledge with the intimacy of personal experience.
